Receiver Edwards has workout with Dolphins

Miami coach Joe Philbin has confirmed former Pro Bowl wide

receiver Braylon Edwards had a workout with the Dolphins.

Philbin says the workout occurred in the middle of last week, a

few days before the Dolphins held their first training camp


The third overall pick in the 2005 draft, Edwards has 341

catches in seven NFL seasons.

The 29-year-old Edwards caught 15 passes for 181 yards in nine

games for San Francisco last season, missing time with knee and

shoulder injuries. The 49ers released him the final week of last

season. His best year was 2007 when he had 80 receptions for 1,289

yards and 16 touchdowns in Cleveland.

The Dolphins traded wide receiver Brandon Marshall to Chicago in

March and signed veteran free agent Chad Johnson in June.
